Who We Are

our mission, vision and beliefs

Our Mission

To reach and empower people with the life and love of God.

Our vision

To see the life and love of God continually reaching and multiplying in our world.

Our Beliefs

The following “we believe” statements are the major tenets of faith that currently ground, influence and guide the mission, vision, values, purpose and methods of Life Source Church. Like the noble Bereans of Acts 17 we endeavor to continue to study the scriptures and be faithful to the truth the Lord reveals to us.


We believe in God, the Creator, Almighty Maker of Heaven and Earth manifested in 3 persons: Father, Son (the Word made flesh) and the Holy Spirit. He is good, He is love and He is just.

Genesis 1:1-2, Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 1:23, John 1:1-3, John 10:30, 1 Corinthians 8:6, 2 Corinthians 3:17, 13:14, Ephesians 2:18, Colossians 2:9, 1 John 5:7-8

Creation and God’s Original Purpose

We believe that in the beginning God created the Heaven, the Earth, the sea and all that in them is in 6 days. God’s original purpose was to create and maintain a world where LOVE (His express image and likeness) reigned and perpetually filled the earth. At the end of day 6 it was very good and God rested the 7th day.

Exodus 20:11, 31:7, Genesis 1:26-28, 31, 2:2, Habakkuk 2:14, Isaiah 11:9

Mankind, the Fall and Redemption

We believe God made mankind (male and female) on the 6th day of creation in the image and likeness of Himself. He blessed them, gave them dominion and commanded them to be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth. Mankind lived in complete harmony with God until the day Adam sinned, causing death to enter into the world, and became enemies of God in their mind by wicked works. Jesus came to redeem and restore mankind back to their original state and through His death, burial and resurrection, all who believe/receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith, come back into perfect relationship with God.

Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 2:16-17, Genesis 3:6-7, Romans 5:8-12, 1 Corinthians 15:21, Colossians 1:13-14, 21, 1 Peter 1:18-19, 2 Corinthians 5:17-21, John 3:16-17, Ephesians 2:8-9, Luke 19:10

Jesus, His Divinity and His Work

We believe that Jesus is the Messiah (the Christ), the Great I AM, the only begotten Son of God, the Word made flesh and the One and only Savior of the world. We believe He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, shed His precious blood, died for the sins of all mankind, fulfilled the law and forgave and reconciled humanity to himself. He was then buried in a tomb, rose again on the third day, appeared many times to His disciples, spoke to them of things pertaining to the Kingdom of God for 40 days, ascended to heaven, sat enthroned at the right hand of the Majesty on high, sent back the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost and is now interceding and reigning with His Bride, The Church. Jesus Christ is He who was, and is and is to come.

Mark 14:61-62, Daniel 9:26-27, Matthew 16:16, John 1:1,14, Luke 22:70, 1 John 4:14, Luke 1:26-35, Hebrews 4:15, 1 Peter 1:18-19, Romans 5:10, Ephesians 4:32, Matthew 16:21, 17:23, 20:19, Acts 10:40, 1 Corinthians 15:4-6, Acts 1:3, 9, Romans 8:34, Hebrews 12:2, Acts 2:1-4, Revelation 1:8, 4:8

Holy Spirit, His Divinity and His Work

We believe the Holy Spirit is God. He indwells every born-again believer in Jesus Christ. He assures and empowers our relationship with the Father. He inspired scripture, guides us into all truth, teaches us all things, brings to remembrance all that Jesus taught and exalts the name of Jesus Christ. He is the Promise of the Father, the regenerator of mankind, the Counselor, the Helper and the gift giver.

2 Corinthians 3:17, Acts 5:3-4, 1 John 5:7, John 14:17, John 14:1Jo 2:27, John 16:13, John 15:26, 1 Peter 1:21, Acts 1:4-5, Titus 3:5-6

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are in operation today and should be exercised decently and in order for the edification of the church and the evangelization of the world. We believe we are to pursue love and desire spiritual gifts.

Acts 2:38-39, 1 Corinthians 12: 1-11, 31, 14:40, Romans 12:6-8, Hebrews 6:5,

Salvation by Grace through Faith

We believe salvation is a gift from God. Salvation is the act of being saved, born-again, made righteous, healed, delivered and made whole. Salvation is only possible through the atoning death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Salvation removes the identity/effects of sin that caused us to be alienated from and enemies of God in our minds and gives us a new identity in Christ Jesus, reconciling us back to the Father. Salvation can only be received by grace through faith and is intended for our whole, spirit, soul and body.

John 3:16-17, Mark 10:52, Luke 7:50, Luke 18:42, Romans 1:16, 5:8-11, 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8-9, Acts 4:12, Ephesians 1:13, 2 Timothy 2:10, 3:15, 1 John 2:2, Colossians 1:21, 1 Thessalonians 5:23

Divine Healing and Prosperity

We believe that divine healing is available through the finished work of Jesus Christ and is ministered and received by grace through faith. We believe it is our Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom and for us to reign in life through Jesus Christ which includes walking in divine health and prosperity.

Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24, Matthew 8:3, Acts 9:34, Luke 10:9, 12:32, Romans 5:17, 3 John 1:2, 2 Corinthians 8:9

The Bible, the Covenants and its Application

We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. It is the written record of God’s covenant journey with mankind that contains 5 major covenants and supporting canons that God made with mankind throughout history including the New and Better Covenant, in which we now live. The Bible is not a static record of God BUT is a dynamic, progressive, revelation of God leading to the final revelation of God found in Jesus Christ. The Bible points us to Jesus, the Word made flesh, teaching us by the grace of God and the empowering of the Holy Spirit how to live godly, wisely and Christ-like in every generation.

2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Genesis 9:8-17, 15:18, Exodus 19:5-6, Deuteronomy 5:25-27, 2 Samuel 7:11-17, 2 Corinthians 3:14, Hebrews 8:6, John 5:39

The Church and its Mission

We believe that the Church is the world-wide family of God, made up of all people who put their faith in Jesus Christ. With Jesus as the head, the Church is led by apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers who have been called to equip the saints for the work of the ministry in reaching the world with the gospel of the Kingdom of God. The church is also known in scripture as, but not limited to: the household of faith, the bride of Christ, the body of Christ, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, the general assembly, the flock of God, family in heaven and earth and the house/temple of God.

Ephesians 3:14-15, Galatians 3:26, Ephesians 1:22, 4:11-15, Colossians 1:18, Acts 20:23, 30-31, Galatians 6:10, Revelation 22:2, 9, 1 Corinthians 12:27, Ephesians 4:12, Hebrews 12:22-23, 1 Peter 5:2, Hebrews 3:6, 1Corinthians 3:16

The Kingdom of God, Our Part and its Increase

We believe that the Kingdom of God is the rule of God, through His family (the church), characterized by righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. The Kingdom of God is physically manifested when earthly issues experience heavenly solutions. The Kingdom of God is the central theme of Jesus’ ministry. He brought the Kingdom, proclaimed the Kingdom, demonstrated the Kingdom and commissioned His disciples to spread the good news of the Kingdom. When people are born again, they are translated out the Kingdom of darkness and into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. We believe that of the increase of His government (Kingdom) and peace there shall be no end.                

Romans 14:17, Luke 10:9, Luke 17:20-21, Mark 1:14-15, Acts 1:3, Luke 13:18-21, Acts 20:23, 30-31, Colossians 1:13, Isaiah 9:6-7

Water Baptism

Water baptism is the physical act of being immersed in water after a person puts their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. When baptized he or she is personally identifying with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in effect saying by their actions, “Jesus’ death was my death and His resurrection is my resurrection. I am now a new creation in Christ; I in Him and He in me!”  We believe every follower of Jesus Christ should be baptized.

Matthew 3:16, Acts 2:41, 8:12-13, 36-38, 10:47-48, Romans 6:4-5, Colossians 2:11-12

Baptism with the Holy Spirit

We believe that being baptized with the Holy Spirit is a spiritual baptism that equips the believer with supernatural power to be a witness in word and deed. We believe every born-again believer possesses the Holy Spirit but being baptized with the Holy Spirit is a specific and subsequent experience to being born-again. This baptism is commonly accompanied by speaking in tongues, prophecy and boldness. Jesus desires all to be baptized/filled with the Holy Spirit and this baptism was historically made possible 50 days after Jesus’ resurrection on the day of Pentecost. This baptism is available to all who ask.

Matthew 3:11, Mark 1:8, Acts 1:5, 8, 2:1-8, 11:16, 19:1-7, Luke 11:13

Financial Giving

We believe the way God financially provides for His ministry is through people voluntarily and faithfully giving tithes and offerings. This financial system has been in operation since the beginning, was governed by the law under the Old Covenant and is NOW governed by love in the New Covenant. It is every person’s opportunity and joy to faithfully give to the local church and toward the increase of God’s Kingdom ministries on the earth. Giving is an act of worship and is an avenue through which Heaven’s resources flow to and through people’s lives.

2 Corinthians 8:8-15, 9:6-7, Luke 6:38, Acts 20:35, Hebrews 7:4-10, Proverbs 3:9, 11:25, Genesis 4:3-4, 14:20, 28:22, Exodus 25:2, 35:5, Matthew 23:23


We believe that marriage was created and defined by God as the covenantal union between one man and one woman for life. Marriage is a physical representation of Christ’s spiritual relationship with His Church. In marriage a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife and the two become one flesh. Marriage is the blessed foundation for healthy family and the bedrock of all human society.

Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:4-6, Mark 10:6-8, Ephesians 5:31-32, Hebrews 13:4, 1 Timothy 3:2, Titus 1:6

Christian Maturity, Growing in Grace, Soul Salvation

We believe that the moment a person puts their faith in Jesus Christ they are a born-again, new creation son or daughter in the Kingdom of their Father God. The Holy Spirit comes to abide in that person and begins working through the regenerating, renewing and sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit. God transforms believers from the inside out as their minds are renewed by the truth of the Word of God. This is what is referred to in the Bible as growing in grace and knowledge, also known as salvation of the soul. We are called to grow up into Him in all things.

Galatians 3:26, 2 Corinthians 5:17, John 1:12, Romans 8:14-16, John 14:17, Titus 3:3-7, Romans 12:2, John 8:31-32, Acts 2:38-39, 1 Peter 1:9, 2 Peter 1:2, 3:18, Ephesians 4:14-16

The Afterlife, Heaven and Hell

We believe that it is appointed unto men once to die and after this the judgment. Through His death, burial and resurrection, Christ paid the penalty of sin, forgave and reconciled all men to Himself making it possible for all mankind to be saved and reconciled to the Father by grace through faith. We believe that those who die having chosen to receive Christ (aka born-again/saved) are absent from the body and present with the Lord in Heaven. We believe that those who die having chosen to reject Christ, His love, His life, His mercy, His forgiveness and His salvation, have rejected eternal life and choose death and Hell (Hades). He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. God is not willing that any perish but that all would come to repentance. We believe that God, the Judge of all the earth, always does what is right.

Hebrews 9:27-28, Romans 5:10, Colossians 1:21, 2 Corinthian 5:19, Ephesian 2:8-9, 1 John 2:22, 4:14, 2 Corinthian 5:1-8, Luke 16:23, Revelation 20:11-15, 21:8, 1 John 5:12, 2 Peter 3:9, Genesis 18:25
